    Dead swan with bird flu one mile away from me.....

    Wasn't the Hong Kong flu of 1968 also bird flu? Is this a different bird flu? If I survived that one, maybe I have immunity.

    My Baking Hobby...need help on cookies

    Putting margarine on the pan could cause the excess browning on the bottom. Cookies usually don't need a greased sheet to cook on because they have plenty of fat in them to begin with. Let us know how your experimenting works out.

    Someone picked the Final Four correctly

    No offense taken, I pick them by color, locale, and mascot. And I do just as well as someone who knows what they are doing. Well, not always.

    If I like HD25-SP will I like ER-6i

    Thanks to you guys I have a great pair of headphones, the Sennheiser HD25-SP. I'm really liking these, thank you very much! Now I want to replace my E2c's. I've never like them, they are so uncomfortable and after listening to music and audiobooks with the HD25-SP I realize the E2c's sound...

    Engagement Ring

    I agree. Buy a nice manmade diamond and tell her how lucky she is that she is marrying a man who is concerned about child labor, slave labor, civil war, etc. With the money you save you can get a platinum setting. My cousin is a jeweler and we get everything at his cost, but I won't buy diamonds.

    Newbie seeks fun loving IEM!! Needs GSOH ;-)

    I'll second Darkninja's opinion about the E2c - unless you like listening to music that sounds like its coming out of tincans.

    What would you do in this situation?

    I wouldn't take the money. I'd ask him to donate it to his favorite charity instead. Linda

    Will I get better sound quality on my ipod if I download music from the itunes music store, or copy it from a cd into itunes? Thank you,

    Headphones banned!

    Maybe music helps them concentrate. The locker room must be a lot quieter if everyone is listening to their own music. Unless there is a structured method that the coach uses for them to "prepare for the match" I don't see a problem with them listening to music, inspirational recordings...
